Measuring Multidimensional Poverty and Deprivation: Incidence and Determinants in Developed Countries

Abstract

This chapter introduces the topic of multidimensional poverty, focusing on its emergence as a metric to gauge deprivation and on the shortcomings of income- and consumption-based measures. Having established a basis for examination of deprivation as a multidimensional phenomenon, we close the chapter with a “road map” for the remainder of the volume.
